  • 3 - 4 large sized onions vertically and thinly sliced
  • oil for deep frying


  • Firstly, add oil in a wok and heat it hot enough to deep fry.
  • When the oil is heated up, add the thinly sliced onions.
  • Stir for a while.
  • Fry the onions on medium to sim flame.
  • Keep stirring them in between to fry them evenly.
  • Fry them until a pinkish color is observed.
  • Keep stirring in between so that all the onions are fried well and evenly attain the pinkish color.
  • At this time be careful as they start getting golden from pinkish within no time.
  • Be careful and try to remove them as soon as they start changing the color.
  • When the onions are fried well and start attaining golden brown color take them out.
  • Place them on a tissue paper and spread them loosely.
  • Let the oil be absorbed by the tissue paper.
  • Place them uncovered for 5 - 10 minutes so that they become dry and get the crispy texture to the onions.
  • When the onions are crispy and crushy, they are ready to be used.
  • Store them in an air tight container.
  • They can be used for several days if stored air tight.


  • Do not fry the onions on very high flame.
  • Always fry them on medium to low flame.
  • If fried on high heat, the onions may turn darker and lose the flavor which is actually required for the recipe.
